Here’s another Transformers toy news that will delight collectors. If you missed out on the accurate toy representation of the Beast Wars Optimus Primal (not Netflix’s version, btw) aka Beast Convoy from 5 years ago, well, here’s your chance to pick up a brand new set.
Takara Tomy is offering up the Transformers Takara Tomy MP-32 Beast Convoy Figure again and it is now available to order from Hasbropulse.com for US$139.99. Delivery is expected to start on June 01, 2022.
Like all Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece toys, it will come in the original packaging with the original Japanese language instructions. The figure will come with 7 alternate faceplates, 2 Cyber Blade weapon accessories, a character card, and the figure itself feature battery-powered light-up eyes.
The Transformers Takara Tomy MP-32 Beast Convoy Figure is a re-issue and as such, I don’t believe it is improved from the previous version which suffers from paint chipping. Hopefully, I am wrong.
I have this, btw and so I know for the fact that paint chipping is an issue which the latter version, the MP-38 (which I also have, btw), does not appear to have.
So, not sure if the re-issue is worth the money if the paint issue has not been resolved. Just saying… Anyhoo, if anyone’s interested, you can pre-order it from major online toy retailers as well as from Hasbro Pulse.
